“Good base for day trips along Ireland's beautiful west coast”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Mountain View is a very good accommodation for a couple or small family that needs basic amenities with the option to cook on their own. My wife and I stayed there with our 2 year old for several nights while we toured Ireland's West Coast from Kilkee to Connemara. It is possible to see the entire region by day trips using Mountain View as a base.

The hosts are extremely friendly and quick to accommodate requests. They let our daughter play in the backyard with their dog and toys whenever we wanted. Our daughter loved playing with Spot and the owner's children. This really made traveling with a 2 year old much easier.

The location is 3 km north of Kinvara and it is not possible to walk to town from the apartment although it is a very short car ride away. The wifi signal was also not very strong. These were the only shortcomings we experienced.

We were not able to use the fireplace due to our toddler running around, but it would be a very nice amenity if you are able to use it.

We were definitely pleased with our stay overall, particularly due to the friendliness of the hosts and the central location.

“We will definitely return”
Reviewed 11 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My partner Mary and I are regular visitors to Kinvara although this is the first time we stayed at Mountain View. We were warmly welcomed on our arrival and found the apt. well aired and heated. It is very well insulated and although there is very effective central heating there is also a fire place for those who like us enjoy the look of a real flame from time to time. The apt. has wi-fi and terrestrial TV stations. The adjoining house is also the owners main residence although they also cater for B & B guests also. If you're fortunate enough (and we were)) you'll meet with the most delightful children and their dog spot who also live at the main residence.
There is so much to do in this area which is within a short drive of the National Park in the Burren and the apt. is an ideal base from which to set out. We will definitely return and have no hesitation in recommending this apartment for those who prefer to go self catering.

“Great value, lovely owners”
Reviewed 14 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I stayed at the chalet with my husband and young baby in September. The place was just what we needed- quiet and compact with all the necessary amenities. The family who own the place live in the B&B adjacent. They bent over backwards to meet all our needs and even baked us fresh scones for breakfast on the day we were travelling home. We drove through parts of the Burren, visited Connemara and Galway city- so it's a great base to start from. Kinvara itself is a lovely little place. Our favourite place to eat was the Gentian- it's worth a visit.

“Great value, very nice accommodations”

We can't imagine better value or a better location for roaming about western Ireland. This apartment proved to be a very reasonably priced and well-appointed base from which to make day trips all over — we went to the Cliffs of Moher, Connemara, Bunratty Castle, Limerick, and more.

And the owners were very pleasant and helpful — they brought over hot oatmeal one morning and homemade biscuits another morning, even though food wasn't officially part of the apartment's amenities.
